MEDFORD, Ore-- Red Cross volunteers from Oregon are on their way to the East Coast to help with Hurricane Dorian.

15 volunteers from Oregon and Washington are going. A volunteer from Grants Pass and Gold Beach are two of those volunteers.  Newswatch 12 met the Gold Beach volunteer at the Medford Airport right as she was about to head out.

Her name is Judi Collins. She tells NewsWatch 12 she is actually headed to Atlanta, Georgia. She will be posted there in case the storm takes the northern path.  "The storm is building and it's gonna be a big one. The destruction path may extend north and west into Georgia and we are always prepared. We have had staff down there for almost a week already and supplies down there for a week already." said Judi Collins, a volunteer with the Red Cross. 

Collins says her job will be to help with hundreds of other volunteers. They are told to come prepared to live in a tent for at least two weeks. Before the storm hits she encourages people to give blood. It may be necessary after the storm makes landfall.
